Twenty-five years ago in Feb. 1995, astronaut Bernard Harris (right) became the first African American to perform a spacewalk. In this image, he and fellow STS-63 astronaut Michael Foale, prepare to exit space shuttle Discovery’s airlock to began their spacewalk. The pair would test new insulation to protect astronauts from the cold, but the Mission Control cut their spacewalk short after the men reported feeling very cold in their suits.

25年前的1995年2月,宇航员伯纳德·哈里斯(右)成为第一位进行太空行走的非洲裔美国人。在这张图片中,他和同为STS-63宇航员的迈克尔·福尔准备离开发现号航天飞机的气闸,开始他们的太空行走。两名宇航员将测试新的隔热材料来保护宇航员免受寒冷的侵袭,但由于宇航员称他们穿着宇航服感到非常寒冷,任务控制中心缩短了他们的太空行走时间。

想成为一名宇航员并创造历史?我们将于3月2日至31日接受阿尔特弥斯下一代宇航员的申请!
